5 AS Roma players to watch out for in the 2018-19 Serie A season
# 2 Stephen El Shaarawy
Stephen Al Shaarawy is one of the most promising youngsters in Italian football. Al Shaarawy infuses a lot of pace in this Roma outfit and can be a big threat because of his exhilarating pace and quick counter-attacks. The 26-year-old can be unpredictable because of his ability to score from unusual positions.
The Italian can be a tough operator because of his ability to outclass the opposition’s defence with his unconventional moves and quick passes. The striker has a knack for creating chances with his deceptive moves. His combination with Edin Dzeko in the forward line will be crucial for the club.
The former AC Milan player will be expected to show the promise he is capable of especially during crunch matches. He scored 7 goals in 33 Serie A games in the last season with 5 assists to his name. In the ongoing season, he has netted 5 goals in 11 Serie A games.
